- Wedding: June 2011
I found and tried on three dresses I really love, but I need some insight on what you think looks best. Just for background, I am having a traditional ceremony in a gothic style church and my reception is in a vintage manor, built in the 1900s. Needless to say, I am going for a more vintage look.
In terms of dress style, I am all about the lace. Here are some items I am considering:
– Integrated straps prefereably, or a style that can easily have lacey straps added
– Fitted bodice with a lacey, detailed dress
Here is a summary of the three dresses – I have tried them all on:
1. Martina Liana 313:
Pros: I love the lace on this one and the unique ruffles on the bottom, along with the sweetheart neckline.
Cons: Train seems a bit lacking for the large church setting (chapel train). Also, In order to take this dress to the next level for me, I will have to order more lace from the manufacturer and have a seamstress fashion some cute straps to complete the image I have in my head. What do you girls think?
2. San Patrick Cobalto:
Pros: This dress has a great train (monarch train, which is longer than a chapel). The lace straps are already there! The lace is great and I really like the sweetheart neckline. I have tried it on with a crinolin and it gives it a nice poofiness.
Cons: My concern is that the sweetheart neckline is a bit “too daring.” What do you girls think?
3. La Sposa Duende:
Pros: Great lace detailing, long train and good poofiness with a crinolin. Also the lace straps are already integrated!
Cons: It doesn’t have a sweetheart neckline – I’m afraid that with the cap sleeve straps, it makes the neckline look a bit too “boxy”. What do you all think?
Which one do you think looks the best? (pics below) Sorry I don’t have me in the actual dress – the place that has these won’t allow photos! But to give you an idea, I am a slender girl, around 5’9″.
All the dresses fit great – I just need some help deciding – Let me know your thoughts!!
Thanks ladies!! 🙂
